Stamp Of The Week – Rustic Christmas


Welcome back, this week I have chosen Rustic Christmas as my SOTW…


I’m certainly getting into the Christmas spirit and I am really looking forward to the BIG day this year. The beans are going to love it and understand a little bit more and I am sure they will LOVE the presents Santa brings them 😉

Anyway, here is my card for today…

A classic Christmas Tree card! I’m loving bold stripes at the moment and the papers in the Stampin’ Up! Pop Of Pink DSP collection is a fave of mine at the moment. I am also ‘making’ myself use them instead of just admiring them on the shelf!

I added some Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy Satin Ribbon, a bow of SU! Bakers Twine and a few ‘very old’ A Muse star gems! A little more to this card than yesterdays card HERE but still fairly mass produceable but more suitable for the hand delivered cards.

That’s all I have to share today, I will be back tomorrow with more using this set. Don’t forget that the set is discounted HERE for this week only.

Until tomorrow, thanks for stopping by 🙂

Stamp Of The Week – Celebrate With Cake

Anyone for third helpings of cake?!

Time for a NEW Stamp Of The Week (SOTW) and this week I am dusting off… Celebrate With CakeCelebrateWithCakepp

As a CAS girl at heart and that relates to most of my life (apart from the beans – LOL!) in card making and paper crafts I rarely reach for the patterned papers. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE pattern, colour and pretty papers. I just find them daunting to use without over cluttering my card and keep my card CAS.

Anyway, I am ‘trying’ to overcome my fear of using patterned papers and so decided to give it ago on tonights card…


I have opted for a simple pattern, however it still spoke summer to me with the fresh yellow and white. It reminded me of a Redcar Lemon Top ice cream hence my lemon frosting on my cupcake!


The cupcake case is stamped in Hero Arts Mint to Green Ombré ink and the yellow frosting is VersaMagic Mango Madness, with a light dusting of Wink Of Stella. Even though the card seems to have a lot going on, I have tried to keep the focal point simple with limited embellishments.

I’m pretty pleased with how my card turned out, but I still need a little more practice and confidence using patterned papers I think!

Ok, that’s all from me tonight, I still have a TON of work to do and a class on Saturday to prepare for. I think I am probably one of the only people in the UK not watching some kind of sport on the TV tonight!

Anyway, I will be back tomorrow with more inspiration featuring this set and don’t forget that this set is discounted HERE on the website this week.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Stamp Of The Week & Uniko Challenge #29 Reminder


Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… Beautiful Blooms II


Today I am combining SOTW with my Uniko Challenge #29 reminder card 😉 I had a bit of creative block yesterday, I have SO much I want to do on my bean free days, it’s hard to know where to start! It is also eerily quiet without them, I don’t think I have quite got used to them not being here for an afternoon!


Anyway, I decided to use the Uniko Challenge colours seen HERE and below as my inspiration!


I also needed some help with my card layout, so I turned to the new CAS Colours & Sketches challenge seen HERE and below for the layout of my card.

sketch 162-2

I was stumped for a while as to what to use for the strips on the sketch and then it occurred to me that I have used ribbon for AGES. Do you find yourself reaching for the same accessories over and over, not using different things? I do and I have to say I have missed not adding ribbon!


I added a few SU! It’s My Party Enamel Dots and a sentiment from Simply Said stamped in Hero Arts Soft Granite ink to finish the design off.

That’s all from me today using this set, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Don’t forget that this set is discounted in store HERE this week too. I hope to see you in the challenge galleries 😉

Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by today.


Stamp Of The Week – Label Love: Christmas


Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week. Basically each week I will be choosing a stamp set to dust off & give some inky love to. Though I am open to requests of stamp sets to revisit, so if you have a request either leave a comment or drop me an email. Along with giving the set some love, the featured set is also discounted in store for that week.

This week I am dusting off… Label Love: Christmas


As I missed half of the week last week (due to November Release prep) & I will be using last weeks Stamp Of The Week, Label Love: Thank you BOTH clear stamp sets are available at a discount for this week in store HERE & HERE.

Anyway, on to today’s card…


Today I decided on another non traditional colour scheme Christmas card, it was firstly inspired by the new Freshly Made Sketches layout seen HERE and below.

FMS Final 211-001

With the beans nap time getting slightly shorter & needing to create a few cards that I will be sharing HERE tomorrow, I needed a jump start on my creativity and using a sketch really reduces thinking time, giving more creative time!!

I decided to ink up the music label contained in the set, paring it with the Let it Snow sentiment and a snowflake from Stunning Snowflakes embossed in silver & stardust embossing powder.


I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins, some Papertrey Ink satin ribbon (slowly using my stash!), some mini rhinestones and also edged the label in glitter which is quite hard to see in the photo, but really adds to the sparkle 🙂

Ok, that’s all from me today, I’m super busy in the home studio this week preparing for the upcoming November Release on the 11th November 🙂 Plus I’m Guest Designing for one of my favourite challenges & Uniko is still sponsoring the ongoing TIME OUT Challenge HERE. All this fun starts tomorrow HERE I hope to see you!

Until, tomorrow with my next Stamp Of The Week post, thank you for stopping by today.
